Perhaps they did. Do you think sending illegals home is as easy as a call to ICE and voila all is right. I wish it were. I have called the immigration authorities before several times while residing in more than one state. They do not just take your call and go pick people up. If you are lucky to get someone who listens seriously-then you are just that-lucky. Do you seriously think these ICE raids are made right after one citizen makes a phone call? The raids are usually after months or more of investigation not to mention the politics and red tape of it all.

So rather than acknowledge a truthful answer to your question as put, you counter with a veiled attack that it is their fault by not reporting it to Ice.

Is it possible to acknowledge that anyone anti ILLEGAL is perhaps right???????

They also had prior warnings. Even I knew there was going to be a raid in Mississippi, I just didn't know where. It's been all over the internet.

Listening to the lies coming from illegal aliens and their supporters, it raises questions of their sanity -- are they deranged? Have they have been telling these lies to themselves so long they actually believe them?

Not so different than to blame the rape victim for the crime. Well did you wear sleazy clothes? Well if you knew the bad man was following you why didn't you call the police? Then its your own fault.
What I don't get is how some can justify illegals and the harm they do to others as acceptable because after all they need a better life.
Maybe they do better work thats why they get the job. NO they work for about 50 % of the cost of a legal. Thats why they get the work.
Why don't people sue? Uhmmm because the cost to sue when sleazy employers have legal crews to mask their crimes is to high. Lets not forget these folks have lost their sourse of income.
Face the facts. Illegals are hurting fellow americans. They are taking food from our mouths. There are victims of this crime.

Bingo . . . For more than a little while now, I have believed they are and indeed they have lied to themselves and each other for so long reality is no longer remotely an option. Even if I could rep you again, it would not convey how dead on I know your statement is.

Talk about the hammer meeting the nail.

That is quite plausible.............or machismo in the face of almost certain punishment if caught here illegally.

I would qualify for SSDI(Disability) if I signed up, but never have. Just out of curiousity, I checked with Social Security to see how much I'd qualify for. = 969.00 a mo,.
Still curious, I called the Health and Welfare Board to see if I qualified for food stamps if I was on Disability Insurance. Sure I would....$12.00 (twelve dollars) worth of food stamps per month.
Illegals a drawing $1200.oo to $1800.oo a mo, on welfare alone. Along with 2-300.00 in food stamps.

I quess we reemburse them for what ever they send back home.
